Estate agents in the county have said there are many factors that impact the desirability of certain streets and some areas in Norfolk offer an opportunity to find a home in an up-and-coming location at a bargain price.
Ian Harris, senior manager at Watsons, said: "There are two main factors that affect property prices which are location and size.
"It is not surprising that somewhere like Great Yarmouth has some of the cheapest streets in the county as the town has lots of small Victorian terraced housing with little gardens which are in general not in the best condition which keeps prices low.
"However, Yarmouth is seeing an upward trend post-pandemic as people want to live close to the beach, so these streets offer good value for money in what is an up-and-coming area.
"Overall Norfolk is increasingly becoming a really good lifestyle destination and the post-pandemic move out of larger metropolitan areas and the desire for more outdoor space is driving prices up as a whole."
Certain streets are also held in higher prestige than others which can push the average property value up as this pushes up demand.
Kris Pearce, branch manager of Minors & Brady in Norwich, said: "The five elements we look at when valuing a house include the size of the property, the size of the plot, the building's condition, its location; is it near a busy road or bars and clubs?, or the area it is in considering the locality to schools and parks.
"Streets near good schools and green parks will inevitably have higher prices compared to houses of a similar size and condition in other areas.
"If one house sells for a good price it will inevitably push up the value of others nearby. The supply and demand for these properties means the value sticks and tends to increase over time."
